We need to start getting your payment for the Behind-The-Scenes Tour! We estimated at least 30 people will be going! Please use the PayPal links located at the end of the announcement, or at the bottom signature on Chief's signature!

 

Thanks! Let's have a good turnout! :thumbs:

With inflation, we have done our best to keep costs down on this event. :) I know that everyone will have a great time, and the cost is really about the price of a nice frag or fish!

..and the experience will be a memory that you will not forget! Please join us in Newport! There is so much to see in there! I just might arrive a day early, and make a weekend out of it! https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g51992-Activities-Newport_Oregon.html

 I was considering going to Newport on Saturday. Hopefully people will carpool here! If you need a ride, or can share a ride, please post here! Thanks!

Can we bring a guest? Do we just pay twice, one member and one non-member in my case?

It would seem that would be the best way to do it. :)

 

 

Everyone is welcome! Remember, it is ages 8 and up. A few times I have had my daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughters along. They have always enjoyed the tours!

Syd is a great host and visiting the school was awesome! It will make you want to do a career change so you can work on tanks for a living!

 

Several of our members went through the program! 

 

Oregon Coast Aquarium is always fun to visit too!

Whoo Hoo!!!

I just found out I get to go, I am trying to pull some strings and get the whole day off. I am rolling out with Miles so it should be a day full of intelligent and interesting conversations. Should anyone form the Corvallis area be going let us know, maybe we can meet up.

Its never too late to join in!

I went to last years and it was a blast, it is really up close and detailed. If you like looking at other peoples systems and\or ways things get done then this is a real treat.

Awesome! We're trying to get some babysitting but if not i'd probably bring a couple of kiddos along.

 

I am going to bring my granddaughters along... they love it there! The Oregon Coast Aquarium Tour is ages 8 and up. :)
